chance of bowl: 13.6%
every football team needs a commie-themed blog
As I'm sure most Michigan fans know by now, tomorrow is the team's annual fan day. Fans will have the opportunity to meet the players, get autographs (one per trip through the line, mind you), and this year, see the inside of the Al Glick Fieldhouse as they wait in line for an autograph from fearless leader. Anyway, MGoBlue drops the details:
The event is free and open to the public. Fans will be allowed to enter the autograph area starting at 12:30 p.m. Parking will be available in the Blue Lot surrounding Crisler Arena. Fans can enter the area through the southwest entrance (just over the railroad tracks) or through the northeast entrance (main softball entrance)...
Michigan players will be signing autographs inside Al Glick Field House and Oosterbaan Fieldhouse. Coach Rodriguez will be signing autographs inside Glick Field House, near the entrance to Schembechler Hall. There will be inflatable items and games for kids on the outdoor practice field.
Sounds like much more of an event than in past years (and if you followed my writings at Varsity Blue, you know I'm very much in favor of this), and should be a fun time for fans who can make it out. It's also the first chance to purchase the "All-in for Michigan" towel, pictured above:
Towels purchased at Fan Day are $5. Towels will be sold for $6.99 after Fan Day at the M Go Blue Shop, The M-Den, Moe Sport Shops, Dunham’s Sporting Goods, Dicks Sporting Goods, area Meijer stores, and The Pizza House on U-M’s campus. A portion of the proceeds from each towel will benefit the campaign to build a new University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Women’s Hospital.
I encourage any Michigan fans who have the opportunity to attend this event tomorrow afternoon.
